My summer with the Kasiisi Project was absolutely incredible! I was conducting research at Kyanyawara, Kasiisi, Kigarama, and Kiko schools on the relationship between nutritional status and energy expenditure of primary school children. I was also looking at the effect of the Kasiisi Porridge Project on this relationship. Through this research I was lucky to have the opportunity to spend all day at school with the students. We jumped rope, played soccer, laughed, and sang. The Kasiisi Project schools and the surrounding communities are truly special. I developed friendships and memories last summer that will last a lifetime and that still make me smile.
